Tear jerker, even today.
President Reagan gave a lot of incredible speeches, but this may have been his best ever.

Apparently President Narcissus is too much in love with himself to even remember what D-Day was.

Thanks for posting. It took me back to the days when America was the greatest nation ever known on this planet.
America still is the greatest nation on earth, we just allowed the village idiot to sit at the adult table.
which is the speech he gave where he read the letter written by the daughter of the Rangers telling her dad she would never let people forget???
My favorite President ever. I could watch him speak all day long.
God bless all those brave young men who took part in D-Day.
